Best Artist Nominee
Diawara’s debut in 2011 marked her out as one of the new stars of African music. The Malian singer – now resident in Italy – toured the world, performed at Glastonbury and climbed aboard Damon Albarn’s Africa Express. Yet she kept us waiting seven years for another solo album. When Fenfo appeared, it was rightly hailed as ‘the comeback of the year.’ This album was a Top of the World in #138.
